that one gift that made me smile

Husband and I will be celebrating our wedding anniversary next month. Yes, we will be turning 7! It's not that long a marriage yet but I've been really blessed with such a good husband and a wonderful father to our daughter. Every time our wedding anniversary comes near, my thoughts would often go back to our wedding day, like it's almost always in playback mode. Wedding photos are likely to get revisited, too. I wonder if most wives are like that. Or perhaps I'm the only one doing this. Sometimes it would even go as far back to the time that we were still in the boyfriend-girlfriend stage. Ah, things like these can really give a good start of the day. I also remembered some of the wedding gifts I have received from friends and family. I'll never forget one of those gifts from a friend that really made me smile (okay, chuckle should be the right word) - it's  bridal lingerie! She practically gave her gift to me secretly in advance to make sure I'd be able to wear one of them after the wedding. Such a sweet and thoughtful friend, isn't she? :-)

Didn't you realize how quickly the days go by? I began to realize that it's almost Christmas time when we officially started our Kris Kringle this month. Definitely, it’s time to buy gifts these days. It’s really fun and exciting to be receiving a little something each week. I am looking forward to the revelation part where we get to know who’s been giving us the gifts we’ve been getting each week.

Speaking of gifts, I have also been planning to give something unique as a Christmas gift to my hubby. Clueless on what to give, I started to browse online for gift ideas and this led me to seeing pictures of Tungsten Rings, particularly the wedding rings. Oh, I would have loved for us to be wearing beautifully designed wedding rings made of rare and durable metal like Tungsten to symbolize our rare and enduring love for each other; however, we already have our wedding rings because we've been married for 4 years already. So, I'll just have to suggest that my friend in the U.S. get this type of ring on her wedding day; that is, if she and her partner would want to deviate from gold or silver where wedding rings are usually made of. Hopefully, their church wedding in the Philippines pushes through next year.

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
